A family cycling adventure through the exciting country of Myanmar, this excursion is a great way for the whole family to get to know the country.
Starting with an exploration of the beautiful Inle Lake, we cycle through the highlands of the Shan state, concluding at the mystical plains of Bagan. The trip has a great deal of scenic diversity and a range of fun activities, including light kayaking, biking, walking, boating and even a scavenger hunt to add to the excitement. We pack a lot into seven days, but you'll never feel rushed on this trip. It's all about balance and keeping the kids engaged as you discover the wonders of Myanmar on two wheels.
115 Km riding. This tour is all about achievable fun on a bike. We use the bike to get closer to the real Myanmar and in doing so, get some exercise and fresh air. The stops are frequent and we are sensitive to the abilities and needs of younger kids. We have sufficient support staff on board to cater for a range of ages and abilities within one group and we always aim to ride during the cooler part of the day. The riding itself is generally on unpaved backroads and trails. We aim to avoid traffic and for the most part are highly successful in doing so. Where we do encounter vehicles they are usually traveling at the same pace as bicycles as they are likely either motor scooters or tractors. There is a little riding in sand, but your guide will provide some tutorial on technique for handling that and once you get the hang of it, it won't even be an issue.
Please Note - This tour is intended for families only. It is possible for us to schedule a private session of the same tour for adults, on request, at a nominal surcharge.
Cycle around Inle Lake before hopping into kayaks to explore floating villages and gardens.
Pedal scenic rolling hills into the valley of Pindaya to visit the storied Golden Cave filled with Buddha statues.
As you climb Mandalay Hill for some pleasant views, complete a scavenger hunt that will be fun for the whole family.
Explore the other-worldly Bagan plain by bike as you visit its many pagodas before a sunset boat ride.
